PLATANUS ACERIFOLIA LONDON PLANE In New Zealand

PLATANUS ACERIFOLIA - LONDON PLANE

A large, reasonably fast growing tree with a spreading, tall habit and outreached branching. Leaves are large and maple-shaped, approximately palm-sized, with pointed tips, and are green in the summer and golden brown in winter. Hardy and very tolerant to urban conditions, their interesting colour and textured mottle-grey features on the trunk can be used ornamentally. Best suited in open area as a feature on the landscape. The large amount of leaf drop in winter and small hairs on the under leaf can cause irritation.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
